The eviction of Hardsuit Labs had consequences
For a bit, we would never have seen the color of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. the CEO of Paradox Fredrik Wester told Placera that the withdrawal of the project from Hardsuit Labs almost sounded the death knell for the project.
What saved the game? a sufficiently good pitch has been presented to the publisher, who therefore made the decision to continue to extend the tickets. The name of the developer is still unknown, but Wester gives them his full confidence.
When we took the game away from the original developer, we thought a lot about whether we would stop development or not. And then we were actually prepared to shut down production completely. But we had a “pitch” which seemed convincing enough to us to pass. […] We have high hopes that it will be a good game that meets the expectations of the players.
This is the reason the title has been postponed indefinitely, rather than face an outright cancellation.
